UPDATE 8:40 AM EST

According to reports, murder charges against Russell Neal are pending, after his 24-year-old girlfriend Catherine Martinez was found dead in their Houston apartment from “stab wounds and blunt force trauma.”

KHOU says a witness revealed:

“He wasn’t resisting arrest or fighting with them, or saying anything. When they brought him out in handcuffs, he was just as calm as can be and they just put him in a police car.”

Uh Oh.  Remember Hi-Five?  Well, one of their guys could be in deep trouble…

TMZ has learned … ’90s singer Russell Neal from Hi-Five is in police custody … after he told cops his wife was dead inside their apartment … and he needed a lawyer.

Neal went to the local jail and apparently told Houston cops he and his wife had gotten into an argument Wednesday … the singer reportedly asked for a lawyer and then clammed up.

Hi-Five’s song “I Like the Way (The Kissing Game)” went to number one in 1991 … and a year later they scored another hit with, “She’s Playing Hard to Get.”

The group’s lead singer Tony Thompson famously died in 2007 after inhaling Freon.

Neal is currently being detained … no charges have been filed.

The lawyer for Hi-Five, Chris Brown, tells TMZ, “We are aware of the situation and are presently evaluating it.”

This all doesn’t sound good…
